Young Mahito lives with his parents in 1940s Tokyo. When tragedy strikes, he travels with his father to the countryside, where he struggles to fit in. He’s also pestered by a strange heron. The revelation that the bird has the ability to speak sets Mahito off on an adventure, travelling to a magical world – a place that allows him to confront his emotions. Miyazaki’s return to feature filmmaking is a vibrant, colourful and moving masterpiece.
